St. Louis Public Service #1743 is currently undergoing a major restoration. The goal is to have the car both cosmetically and electricly restored. When completed, the car will be operational and placed in to service along side the other 3 cars we currently operate at the Museum.

If you are in the St. Louis area and interested in trolleys stop by and let us show you our progress.
